Welcome to the Antelope Valley Group of the Sierra Club, enthusiastic explorers and protectors of the natural wonders of the Antelope Valley, San Gabriel Mountains, and surrounding areas. We lead easy to challenging hikes in the Angeles Forest, wildflower walks in season, and trips to nearby desert parks like Red Rock Canyon and Saddleback Butte. Our members work as volunteers and "friends" of the Angeles National Forest and state parks, and collaborate with local citizen groups to protect our environment and quality of life. We have regularly scheduled meetings in Jan, Feb, Apr, May, Oct, and Nov, with programs on travel, environmental issues, local natural history, and many other topics. We also have activities such as an ice-cream social in September, a holiday party in December, fundraiser dinner in March, dessert potluck in June, and a picnic in the Angeles Forest in July or August. Our currently scheduled activities are posted here, and are open to everyone.
